Repertory Theatre
A REPERTORY THEATRE (also called REPERTORY, REP or STOCK) can be a Western theatre or opera production in which a resident company presents works from a specified repertoire, usually in alternation or rotation. In the British system, however, it used to be that even quite small towns would support a rep and the resident company would present a different play every week, either a revival from the full range of classics or, if given the chance, a new play, once the rights had been released after a West End or Broadway run. However the companies were not known for trying out untried new work. The methods, now seldom seen, would be also used in the United States, Canada, and Australia

Son Of The Bride (TV Series)
SON OF THE BRIDE was a 1973 BBC television comedy which lasted one series. The central character was Neville Leggit, played by Terry Scott , a mother's boy who was rather old to be still single.

His mother, played by Mollie Sugden , was a widow who was intending to remarry (to a man played by George A. Cooper ). Her son was not happy about the marriage (at one point we see him reading a book "Matrimonial Law", evidently trying to find a way of stopping it).
